Every time I see Hope Solo I can't help but think of the chick on Dexter.
then dont open a thread that is intitled Women's World Cup
being an college keeper,
rainy days make for some sloppy goals... We should be firing from all distances.
Great stuff from Hope Solo there, France was in with a clear shot and she makes a great challenge. We're the better side, but France is getting pressure & Hope will need to be strong.
Ask Chet. He's an insider
Wow, that was a little close for comfort
i love goalposts
Brilliant build-up, Wambach just puts it across the mouth of goal. Arg!
just need to play out of the half
Halftime, USA leads 1-nil on the strength of an early goal. France has gotten their share of the pressure, but has mostly fired from outside & Hope Solo has been more than up to the task.
Hoke Solo is a beast
You think she's a beast now--you should see Hoke Solo when she's pointing.
thanks for the updates. what are the weather and field conditions? are the players slipping and sliding?
It's been drizzly, but it doesn't seem to be affecting the players too much.
Scary chance from France right off the bat - USA going to need to do better than that to protect the lead.
Convinced it's impossible to score on Hope Solo
I'm sorry for jinxing you Hope
Will you forgive me
France puts one in on a cross that no one was able to catch up to. 1-1, and the USA is really going to need to step up the play.
The guy scores a goal in his first game. Probably never going to top that unless he does it in a meaningful game.
I would embed it but the explanatory link on the MgoBoard Faq does not seem to be working for me.
Heather Mitts might be coming in for Kreiger? She will win the debate of Morgan vs Solo. Even if she is 33.
The good thing about this score is that you might see another epic USA goal late (or in ET) :)
That would ruin my ESPN Streak for the Cash.. I'm at 10, my highest ever!
You bet on France?
Gasps from the home crowd
Why would you pick France? US is number 1 in the world, coming off a HUGE emotional win with a ton of momentum. I would have thought US in this one was a no brainer...
The bet was US winning in regulation vs. France winning in regulation or a draw.
So I picked US to win in regulation, which was in doubt when France tied it up. But now it's looking good again!
Ah that makes much more sense, well picked sir.
22 France shots to USA's 6. This is bad. USA doesn't even look like they belong on the same field as France at times.
Of course, they score two goals while I was in the bathroom. I swear, every sports team I root for does better when I don't watch.
More seriously, if you miss two scores in SOCCER while on the can, you might need more fiber in your diet.....
Can someone explain why the French player heading the ball out of Solo's hand was not a card?
ABBY WAMBACH!!!!!!!!!!! GOAL GOAL GOAL GOAL GOAL! Completely against the run of play, the best player in the world in the air buries another one!
Wambach headers are epic
WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Alex Morgan!
That's the dagger!
ALEX MORGAN! Game over, good night France, hello World Cup Final!!!!
That'll Do It!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That was hot.

Anyone else a bit disappointed she didn't pull a Brandi Chastain?
Hoped? nah? Cared? would not have minded at all.
In that rain and cold there's definitlley a bit of nippleitis going on im sure.
i <3 Alex Morgan
SWEEP THE LEG
